Roasted Cabbage with Udon Noodles, Mushrooms and Cilantro-Lime Dressing

Roasted Cabbage Wedges with Noodles, Mushrooms and Cilantro Lime Dressing

I came across this post on The Kitchn last year and pretty much went right home and made the cabbage right away that first evening (and many times since). I’ve always roasted it in the oven instead of grilling and I’ve found that it works very well ithat way. It’s funny, I’ve never really been a big fan of cabbage but this recipe just really works, you know? Kind of like how roasting brussels sprouts will turn those haters into huge fans — same thing here.

Sweet and Spicy Asian Pork Shoulder (Slow Cooker Recipe)

Sweet and Spicy Asian Pork Shoulder (Slow Cooker Recipe)

Some days there is nothing better than having something tasty simmering away in a slow cooker. The house starts smelling delicious about maybe hour two and it just keeps getting better smelling ALL DAY. So wonderful. This is one of those recipes that you definitely want going for 7-8 hours on a cold winter day.

Strangely, I haven’t really done that much with pork shoulder before, just a handful of recipes, but I think this one is definitely a keeper. I chose to use Ponzu Sauce (soy . . . → Read More: Sweet and Spicy Asian Pork Shoulder (Slow Cooker Recipe)

Asian-Fusion Tuna Tacos

This was a delightfully odd mix of a meal. I saw the original recipe and thought it sounded somewhat interesting but both jwa and I really, really liked the resulting dinnerc. I am always a fan of tacos and these were no exception. I got some local Oregon coast Albacore Tuna Loin from Flying Fish and went to work with my grill pan.

And bonus! During one of the very few, very hot days we’ve had so far this Summer — the grill pan is only heated for about 5-6 minutes total! Yay!

Copper River King Salmon with Wasabi Aïoli and Soy-Maple Drizzle

Copper River King Salmon with Wasabi-Aioli and Soy-Maple Drizzle

This actually happened: Well, hello there beautiful piece of Copper River King Salmon. Whatever shall I do with you? Goes off to consult cookbook. Hey! The recipe in this cookbook is even specifically for Copper River King Salmon! Looks like this is what’s for dinner.

So, yeah, that’s kind of how I decided on this one (besides the fact that it looked awesome). And yeah, it seems kind of fussy what with the marinade and the two sauces, but if it’s a weekend and you have time . . . → Read More: Copper River King Salmon with Wasabi Aïoli and Soy-Maple Drizzle

Sweet & Sour Pork

I am always on the lookout for easy recipes that I can make at night and then use the next day for work lunches. So when I saw this recipe at Serious Eats recently, I was really excited because Sweet & Sour anything is kind of an old school guilty pleasure for me. But, then I actually read through the whole recipe and realized it was deep fried. Now, I know that’s totally delicious, but it seems like deep fried foods are not great idea to make the night before with the . . . → Read More: Sweet & Sour Pork
